What are the different types of boxes?

There are 6 common types of box style code that were developed by the European Federation of Corrugated Board Manufacturers

Slotted Boxes

Slotted boxes consist of one piece with a glued, stitched or taped manufacturers joint and top and bottom flaps. They are shipped flat, ready to use and require closing using the flaps provided. These boxes are the most common box styles in the world.

Telescope boxes

Telescope-type boxes consist of more than one piece and are characterised by a lid and/or bottom telescoping over the body of the box.

Folder boxes (folders)

Folder-type boxes and trays usually consist of only one piece of board. The bottom of the box is hinged to form two or all side walls and the cover. Locking tabs, handles, display panels etc., can be incorporated in some designs.

Slide-type boxes

Slide-type boxes consist of several pieces of liners and sleeves sliding in different directions into each other. This group also includes outside sleeves for other cases.

Rigid-type boxes

Rigid-type boxes consist of two separate end pieces and a body and require stitching or a similar operation before they can be used.

Self-erecting boxes

Self-erecting boxes consist of basically one piece, are shipped flat and ready to use by simple setting up.
